Schwarzer set to re-sign with Chelsea

MARK-SCHWAZERSYDNEY, June 4- Veteran goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer on Wednesday said he expects to sign a new deal with Chelsea after manager Jose Mourinho indicated he wanted him to stay for another season.

Schwarzer, 41, joined the Premier League powerhouse on a one-year contract last year and largely played second fiddle to Petr Cech.

But Mourinho has been impressed with the Australian and another one-year deal is on the cards despite the reported return of Thibaut Courtois from a three-year loan to Atletico Madrid.

“I’ve had messages from the boss, he’s very keen for me to re-sign with the club,” Schwarzer said in Sydney.

“And that’s all I really need to know — that he wants to keep me at the club and I’ll leave the rest up to the powers-that-be to sort it all out.

“I’m confident it’ll be sorted out in the next week or two.”
